No Highway in the Sky is a 1951 dramatic thriller directed by Henry Koster and the adaptation of the novel No Highway by Nevil Shute. Aeronautical engineer Theodore Honey (James Stewart) is investigating the wreckage of a new passenger plane, the "Reindeer" airliner, manufactured by his company. Upon examination, Theodore comes to theorize metal fatigue in the tail section is responsible for the disaster. While his theory is being laboratory tested, he boards a plane to return to London, not realizng he is boarding a Reindeer within the allotted timeframe he predicted the plane would experience complete structural failure. Despite his theory is still unproven, Honey chooses to warn the passengers and crew of the potential disaster, causing a mid-air panic. While the flight proves otherwise uneventful, Theodore is driven to extreme measures in order to make sure further flights are grounded calling into question his sanity and his scientific methods. However, if his theories prove to be true, the world may face a series of unprecedented air disasters.moreless
